Default Accident this morning?

Buena Vista was blocked to the south at roundabout by the Savannah Center around 7:30am. Lots of emergency vehicles visible just south of roundabout. Anyone know what happened?

That roundabout is notorious for accidents, most of them ,there, are caused by a vehicle making a left turn from the right hand lane, especially if they are new to the are and don't know the rules and don't know where they are--this is why you should never have a vehicle alongside you in a roundabout

Good advice.

I guess I missed it as I was still asleep.

Seriously, it's always prudent to drive with extra caution during the snowbird season. I'm not saying a snowbird caused this accident but I see a lot of people making illegal turns in the RAB.

I make it a rule never to be side by with another car in the RAB's.

Yes there was an accident on Buena Vista ...it had nothing to do with the round about at Savanah area. I traveled North at 8:20 am and the involved vehicles were located half way between the pond & the Glenbrook gate.
